America's Lady of Supernatural Thrillers

“Raven's Cove, a great mystery by Mary Ann Poll. Avoid it when winds are gusting to hurricane speed outside. No extra creepiness needed.”
~Bonnye Matthews
Step aside Stephen King, Alaska’s Mary Ann Poll is here to spin new tales of the super-natural and the ungodly, as her heroes and heroines take on the forces of evil on 'The Last Frontier.' ~Jeff Babcock


The glamorous life (Really?)

As a little-known author, my life consists of much more than writing. I dream of the day I can delegate some of the household chores so I can spend more time on my writing.  Until then,  like most women who do not work out of the home, I am responsible for our household.  And, like many others, I am blessed with a good-size household – my husband, myself, my mother-in-law, and our 21-year old son. Then, there are the 3 dogs and a cat. (By the way, these all make for good writing material – I hardly have to leave home to find a new character!)

Today iis my son’s 21st birthday.  A very special day indeed. So, in addition to finding time to continue the rewrite of the 2nd book, I am off to do the errands for our household and get a birthday celebration together.

On the bright side (for a writer), it is a beautiful day where I live in Alaska.  The sun is shining.  There is promise of warmth.  The song birds have returned and I smile everytime I hear a robin singing for a mate.  I am looking at Mt. Susitna as I write this.  Perpetually coverd in snow and today white and dark blue against a clear chrystalline sky.  I need to go no further for inspiration.  I am so blessed to have it in my own back yard….. Well, off to begin a beautiful day.  No matter what, write on – its worth it! Mary Ann
